Library Services Access Spring 2021

As we come out of lockdown, we’re extending all loans to 12 April 2021, and continuing to waive charges on spoken word items. There’ll be no overdue fines applied between 28 October and 12 April 2021. Pre-existing fines will remain on your account.

The Hive remains open. You can browse shelves for up to 20 minutes at a time, and borrow books using self-service kiosks. You can reserve and collect books using the library catalogue, either at The Hive or any open Worcestershire branch library. You can return your loans through the external hatch next to the entrance or at any open branch library. There will be a delay of 3-4 days between the date a book is returned and when it is removed from your account.

Book a study space or computer by calling 01905 822722. You can book a 2 hour study space for individual use. You can book a computer for 50 minutes. Please speak to a member of staff if you need additional time. Printing is self-service as normal.

We are currently operating a reduced service and unable to place inter library requests for print books. However, we will supply chapters from ebooks instead where possible, and can still provide online articles.

We continue to supply postal loans to students studying at a distance, and staff and students who are shielding or self-isolating. We are currently operating a reduced service due to the need to adhere to Covid-related safety measures so there may be a delay in supplying books by post. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
